The music of one of the twentieth-century greatest geniuses Igor Stravinsky features prominently in the 5th edition of the Festival with two concerts dedicated to his music. The highlight of the first concert is Les Noces, a most remarkable achievement in which Stravinsky’s Russian musical inheritance is presented without any ‘civilising’ filters. The music is spectacularly scored for solos, mixed choir, percussion and four pianos. The programme includes also Bartok’s Rumanian Folk Dances which together with other shorter pieces by Stravinsky shows the touch of modernism in transforming and regenerating existing musical material.
